Jeremy Chinn

CHARLOTTE - Jeremy Chinn opened the history books and broke out a Buck Leonard jersey from the Homestead Grays before Sunday's Week 6 game against the Vikings.

A native of Rocky Mount, N.C., Leonard played for the Homestead Grays of the Negro Leagues between 1934 and 1950, teaming with Josh Gibson to form one of the best batting lineups in all of baseball history. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972. In 1999, Sporting News listed him at No. 47 of the Top 100 Baseball players to ever live.

Leonard's jersey joins Rod Brind'Amour, Sterling Sharpe, Stephen Curry, Julius Peppers and Muggsy Bogues among those that Chinn has worn so far and is now auctioning off for charity.
